We’ve all been there - you casually look at a friend’s Facebook photos, and somehow find yourself browsing through their aunt’s best friend’s daughter’s ‘Lanzarote 2009’ photo album.
But the days of casually Facebook ‘stalking’ just got a lot riskier, thanks to Facebook’s latest feature.
The social media giant has quietly added a new way to like photos by double-tapping on them.
This action previously allowed users to zoom-in on photos, and could lead to a lot of accidental likes.
Social media expert, Matt Navarra, spotted the feature, and tweeted a screenshot of it in action.
He wrote: “New! Facebook now let’s you double-tap a post to Like it on iOS.”
This feature is likely a way to make Facebook’s functionality more similar to Instagram's (which Facebook also owns), where double-tapping a photo allows you to like it.
But users have been quick to point out the trouble it could cause for casual Facebook stalkers.
One user tweeted: “Oh no. I do that to zoom in when I’m in full-on stalker mode. I am doomed,” to which another replied: “My first thought, too.”
